Quiet Rest

He said to them, "Come with Me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest."  Mark 6:31
Have you ever been so tired that all you want to do is sit down by yourself?  Have you ever felt so over burdened that you don't know what you are going to do.  How you ever felt like the sun is not going to rise tomorrow?  If you are like me you have.  God's word tells us that He created the world in six days but on the seventh day He rested.  His word tells us to give all our worries and cares to Him but we don't listen.  His word tells us the He will take care of tomorrow but yet we still worry.  Why?  Because we think we know better and if we don't take care of things then no one will.  If we would only listen and take the time to rest in His word, meditate on it and listen to what God is speaking to us.  Will everything be perfect?  Absolutely not, but with God leading and directing our path things will be easier.
Near To The Heart Of God
by Cleland B. McAfee, 1903
There is a place of quiet rest,
Near to the heart of God.
A place where sin cannot molest,
Near to the heart of God.
O Jesus, blest Redeemer,
Sent from the heart of God,
Hold us who wait before Thee
Near to the heart of God.
